Do we really need a ´policy intervention´
to prevent cats from chasing mice?

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/2/2013 12:16:10 PM

You can´t make stuff like this up. The Huffington Post reports that a new study, led by Scott Loss of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, is calling attention to the baneful problem of domesticated cats chasing mice, birds, and other prey to kill and eat them. Oh, the horror. Our findings suggest that free-ranging cats cause substantially greater wildlife mortality than previously thought and are likely the single greatest source of anthropogenic mortality for US birds and mammals

If you´ve ever had mice get into your house, you are grateful that cats kill them. I live in a very old farm house out in the boonies and, when we moved in, there were mice. They leave their little scat EVERYWHERE. Fortunately we had six cats - problem solved.

Read this a couple days ago and just rolled my eyes. There certainly is a population (unfiortunately growing) f ill informed and emotionally stunted individuals who cannot understand any factual information until it has been passed through the "utopian" filter.

To these children the world existed in some kind of utopian balance of harmony and peace until Evil Europeans left their devastated continent to spread pestilnce and ignorance across the globe. Indigineous peoples had vast wisdom destroyed by whites, the environment was pristine and harmonious. There was no death, indigineous peoples had some mystic higher plane of existence which allowed them to self regulate there impact so that nature was left in its proper utopian balance.

This is the root of the "cruing Indian" anti littering campaign of the 70´s. Its also tripe of the first order. Read accounts of explorers entering indian camps for the first time. Their first impression is often the unbelievable stench, this from a group of people whos own hygiene would be quite questionable.

Indigineous peoples Survived due to low population. They worked one area until it was entirely depleted, they would shoot the last deer or eat the only remaining rabbit if they could. They defecated in the streams, threw their garbage in the dirt and burned and cut down everything they could. When the area was too devastated to support them/\.

Then they picked up and moved a couple dozen miles and started over. All of the greens views and policy desires are based on this ine flawed utopian view. As more and more of them are completely divorced from the nature they worship (most eco whiners are urban city dwellers) this ignorant and simplistic view has only grown stronger.

Back in the 90´s someone on the SF city council proposed rounding up and euthanizing all cats. It was to protect the song birds. How lovely the city would be with all the song birds and every car covered in pigeon poo.

Three of the four Attercliffe cats want to know what a mouse is. The fourth says, "Where is it, lemme at it!"

Hence, three out of four cats are not interested in mice.

Btw, an absolutely amazing coincidence arises as this article comes out within a short time of similar studies in the UK and Australia. Isn´t it odd how these coincidences pop up so often? And I reiterate: liberals, generally speaking, don´t like cats. This is probably because most cats are not as needy as dogs.

I want to know how many rodents (and cats) are killed by hawks, owls and other raptors. And what about our fish supply--my goodness the amount of sea creatures snagged by pelicans, white, little and great blue herons, seagulls, ospreys, eagles and other avian fishers around here could probably feed a starving family for at least a year on just half a day´s catch.

Ya´ seriously just have to laugh your arse off at what passes for liberal ´intellect´...

Only the bozo-brained would yearn for a return to the Bubonic Plague days...

And only the dain-bramaged raise hell about cats killing birds - while studiously ignoring the 10´s of thousands of birds killed in VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW - by the great holy untouchable *wind power* industry.

Which leads to the conclusion that liberals are adept at whining about kittens, but a bit less blow hard when the wind is blowing in their preferred direction.

Peter, Paul and Mary would be *so* proud!

What I want to hear is how somebody sold this idea for a study to the grand high poobahs at some college or federal grant-o-rama.

Sure, I can see a couple science geeks over a Lite Beer by Miller saying, "wonder if we could score a few grand studying how many birds and mice that a cat kills?" Other geek says, "no way", geek no 1 says "way" and they decide to give it a whirl.

But ... well, I forget. Our universities and federal grant givers are full of low information voters. And they all think they´re taking it from the rich guy.

Never mind.

#3, actually, early accounts are of a plentiful population of Native Americans. “Like a hive of bees” a Columbus voyager called it. By the time later explorers arrived disease had already decimated the native population, leaving evidence of abundant early villages where now only scattered motley groups remained. What the early reports of stench in the villages referenced was the appalling number of unburied corpses resulting from smallpox wiping out entire villages. It is estimated that over 90% of the population decimation of Native Americans was due to disease, spread not only by humans, but also by pigs introduced t to North America by early Spaniards.

Study - schmuddie. #13´s two geeks had a pocket calculator and a bong along with their lite beers and extrapolated a full blown crisis out of a halffast theory. Grant money WAS the goal.
We need a coupla enterprising conservative geeks to do a study on grant monies handed out and how the results have changed the world say a decade hence. Bet it wouldn´t shock many of us on the right how much of these dollars have been squandered on phart-in-a-breeze thinking.

I suppose since I am letting the "cat out of the bag" here, they will be coming after dogs next. My dogs do not discriminate regarding pray - they equally go after mice, rats, birds, rabbits and squirrels.

These people are absolutely mad. They moan and groan about human overpopulation, underpopulation of wildlife - they are free to set an example and show the world they are committed and sterilize themselves, etc.

Saw in my dr.´s office the other day (CNN TV programming) pushing the idea that we should begin eating insects due to low cholesterol, high in protein, etc. It will solve world hunger - it´s the new agenda - dis-arm and dis-food. Yeah, set the example libs....

Battleground Polls and Conservative Strength

The percentage is lower than almost any Battleground Poll in the last fifteen years. The percentage of Americans who call themselves “liberal,” by contrast, is at an all-time high. Modification in the demographics of the poll sample may have something to do with the change. Women form 53% of the sample, while women are 50.6% of the population.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
